In the alledged words of Priscilla Mullins -- Speak for yourself, John.
A head scarf may be any shape but is generally square.
A shawl is generally 5ft/1.7m on the longest side and may be either
trianglular or oblong.
A scarf is never more than a foot wide, but may be anything from 18 in./0.5m
to 6 ft/2m long, depending on what you're using it for.
These of course are usages in my corner of the US. Actual dictionary
definitions show little distinction between the words.
The only use of neckerchief I've ever heard in my life is in regard to
the ceremonial neckwear of certain organization, including Boy Scouts.
